America Is Hard to See

Info

Whitney Museum of American Art
99 Gansevoort Street
New York, NY 10014
May 1 – September 27, 2015

Words

The Whitney Museum of American Art is currently holding the inaugural exhibition at their new building on New York City's High Line. It runs until September 27th and is bound to resonate with anyone who has an interest in 20th century painting, sculpture, photography and filmmaking. Acting as an historical survey of the major events in American art during this period and a record of the Whitney’s acquisitions, there are more than 600 works on show, separated into 23 distinct chapters which group together like-minded artists from concurrent eras. As is often the case with such ambitiously assembled exhibitions, not everything on show will be to everyone's taste, but it does feature important pieces from all movements and a number of lesser-seen works. The Scotch Tape chapter particularly appeals to me, with contributions from Bruce Conner and Al Held, as well as Jay DeFeo’s more than 1500 pound sculptural masterpiece, The Rose.

Agnes Martin seems to be having a well-deserved moment in the sun with a retrospective at the Tate Modern, which runs until October 11th before heading to Dusseldorf, Los Angeles and New York. To coincide with the exhibition, the renowned London-based art museum has released a definitive monograph, featuring early works, Martin's striped and gridded paintings, and a series of her final pieces. The publication also includes a selection of drawings, watercolours and critical essays, creating a wonderful overview of one of 20th century art’s most enduring icons, as well as a testament to a strong female figure who made a name for herself in the veritable boy’s club of minimalism.

Words

Heath have brought back Japanese potter Akio Nukaga for another exhibition of his outstanding ceramics at their Los Angeles studio and showroom. Visitors will be able to view new works from his Mashiko kiln, including pleated vases, cups and teapots which evoke his customary style, as well as new techniques like the indigo glaze utilized in his Blue Band Collection. Be sure to pick up the richly textured, longer neck Bud Vase he produced with Heath as a collaborative piece, since I’m sure supplies are very limited.

01. Asymmetric hem.

Words

Fall-Winter collections might be arriving in stores, but I have a hard time considering coats and knitwear during the height of summer. If you're able to overlook such things, this thick cotton sweater from Maison Margiela features a mixed patchwork pattern that is unique yet easy to pull off. You just might not want to pull it on for another couple of months.

01. Photography by Laure Joliet.

Words

Although he's issued two RRL titles and one about Marilyn Monroe, most of the publications that Tom Adler produces focus on iconic imagery from the annals of surf and climbing culture. To coincide with the recent release of An Uncommon Archive, a new volume from T. Adler Books that "draws from the seemingly disparate worlds of surfing, fashion and style, fishing, music, fine art, rock climbing, travel and adventure," T Magazine caught up with Tom at his Padaro Lane home near Carpinteria, California.
